Happy New Year!
For this New Year’s Eve a friend of mine won us tickets to be on the Cahill Expressway above Circular Quay for the midnight fireworks – giving us some of the best views of the Harbour Bridge. Because we couldn’t access the expressway until 10.30pm we watched the 9pm fireworks from Observatory Hill.
All up the evening was fun, and different to previous years which have been spent at Barangaroo. Observatory Hill would be a great place to watch both sets of fireworks, it doesn’t have the best angle on the bridge but you can see a lot of the harbour. While the views from the expressway were great, not staying in one place the entire evening was rather annoying, and we learnt that crowds of families push forward in lines worse than most young people do! A little bit of extra excitement was also added to the evening when something caught fire just before midnight in Circular Quay sending flames and smoke high into air.
Below is a selection of photos from the evening.
